Lapras -- Next Destinies Pokemon Card Review

Lapras Next Destinies Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lapras from the Next Destinies set. This is the uncommon version of Lapras from the Next Destinies set. I have already reviewed the rare card. So Lapras is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 90. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Lapras doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Water Arrow and for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless it does 20 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon. Lapras' second move is called Surf and does the standard 60 damage for three energy cards, two water and one colorless.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this card is a basic Pokemon card and requires at least two energy to attack this card is pretty slow so you'll want to try and set it up on your bench if possible. I would include this card in a spread damage type deck so you can use Water Arrow on your opponent's benched Pokemon and either knock some of them out with the move or set up other Pokemon on your team to knock those Pokemon out. I would mainly use this card for spread damage but if you need an attacker that does a fair amount of damage Surf isn't a bad move and since this card is a basic you don't have to spend time evolving to get to Lapras to do the 60 damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. In my opinion this card is actually better than the rare version from this set, I like how it can spread damage on how both of its moves do damage to the defending/opposing Pokemon. There isn't anything too special about this card, nothing that really stands out so that is why I'm giving this card an average rating of 3 out of 5.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Lapras from the Next Destinies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Basculin from the same set.
